Keep it Simple, Sister

When did staying healthy and well get so complicated? I get so many questions from patients and my radio audience: “What do you think about acai berry? Protein powder? Resveratrol? Fish oil? Vitamin D capsules? Water Ionizers? Detox foot patches?”

Magic cleansing pills. Super antioxidant supplements. Amazing anti-aging elixirs.

The list never ends.


I’m starting to get gray hair just trying to keep up-to-date with the latest de-stressing, anti-aging, super longevity remedies!

It always comes back to this:

Keep it Simple, Sister.

It’s the most basic, simple things in our every day lives that are the most important.

The simple stuff may not sound sexy – but keeping it simple works.

Every time.

As cool as this stuff seems, expensive anti-aging creams, a cupboard full of vitamins and longevity potions, cosmetic surgery, the newest health technology and thousands of dollars worth of special equipment can sometimes work, but cannot buy us the radiant health, happiness or every day wellness that we crave.

What it comes down to is this:

Basic lifestyle choices ALWAYS work.

And, will give us 80-90% of the results we are looking to achieve.

What is Really Important

-- Eat a variety of fresh, whole, colorful, unadulterated foods as Nature intended.

-- Include fresh, sexy, leafy greens into meals, smoothies and juices.

-- Exercise and be active.

-- Take the time each day to get still and breathe.

-- Sleep well.

-- Truly care for yourself.

-- Take time out -- unplug from computers, phones, television and electronics often.

-- Laugh.

-- Enjoy new experiences.

-- Connect.

-- And above all -- Love.

Follow these basic guidelines and true wellness can be yours. Can it be that simple? I think so.

Sometimes, you've just got to keep it simple, Sista. After all, less is more.
